Modern meets traditional in grand old Prague

Whilst many European cities have gradually modernised and adapted a 21st century look, Prague excels at changing with the times whilst remaining classically beautiful. Strolling around town, you get a sense of Prague’s rich and troubled history, but the culture of old-meets-new cosmopolitan desires to embrace the weekend-away spirit. As for shopping, unearth beautiful craftsmanship and wonderful jewelry.

The history of Jews from emancipation to the present Editors' Note

Built in 1868, on the place of the Old Shul (oldest Jewish prayer house), the Spanish Synagogue (Spanelska Synagoga) is one of the most beautiful of all Jewish synagogues in the city. The synagogue is renowned for its striking Moorish interior, but the building combines other architectural styles as well.

The building was realized according to a project by Vojtěch Ignác Ullmann and Josef Niklas, and the interior designed is signed by A. Baum and B. Münzberg. The Spanish Synagogue (Spanelska Synagoga) also houses exhibitions that tell the history of the Bohemian and Moravian Jews from the end of the 18th century through World War II.
